Umberto had first arrived in Hong Kong in 1993, when he worked at Toscana at the Ritz-Carlton, and became a prime mover in introducing the white truffle to Hong Kong’s restaurant scene, eventually leading to him being named as a White Ruffle Ambassador.

He opened 8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana in Hong Kong in 2010, and the success of the restaurant led to him opening another in Shanghai in 2012 and 8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana in Macau in 2014.

The restaurant name is a tribute to Umberto’s favourite Italian film director Federico Fellini’s movie, 8½.
